You will upload a narrated PowerPoint presentation file as outlined below. Sample presentations from previous classes are posted in Resources. The PowerPoint File will be submitted via Campus Web to the “Turnitin” originality software program.
You may choose any corporation other than your APA Paper Corporation. For this assignment the Board of Directors (Board) of your chosen corporation seeks an independent review of their current strategic plans. You have been hired by the Board to present a concise strategy analysis at the next quarterly board meeting. Your compensation is 100 points (your maximum grade) for the presentation file. The board expects a complete and thorough presentation file.
A 2 – 3 Minute Video of a current event about your chosen corporation will be included. Your video must connect to either a strategy model topic that was available in the ONLINE class or a strategy model topic developed from your own independent research. The strategy model topic must be different from the topic you used for your APA paper. Try to choose a video that is fun to watch! Have fun with this assignment!
You will then present original custom PowerPoint slide(s) that connect the video to the Strategy Model that was chosen above. Note: Videos must show the corporation, not the strategy model!!
